Discover Toronto by bike!
We started renting bikes nearly a decade ago when Toronto's bike culture first started booming. Back then no one was renting and, as a store that travels often to Europe to visit our suppliers, we couldn't imagine visiting a great cycling city unless we were on one ourselves! Today there are tons of bike lanes, lots of gorgeous back-streets, hidden alleyways and best of all, strength in numbers. There are moments that cycling in Toronto feels not unlike cycling in Amsterdam. We've taken over the streets!
Like the bikes we sell, our DNA is in city bikes - so those are the bikes we rent. Unlike any other store in Canada we rent Toronto's own Simcoe city bike brand, the perfect way to explore in upright comfort. If you're off to Montreal by train or just want to try one, we also rent the venerable Brompton folding bikes. And, if you want to take the kids out for a ride or just need to move some stuff around while avoiding gridlock, we now offer Babboe cargo bikes too!
Toronto is great to explore. Our dense downtown is full of independent shops, restaurants and cafe's. The foodie scene is on fire and the coffee rivals the west coast. You can explore colourful immigrant enclaves like Little India, East Chinatown, Chinatown, Little Portugal, Little Italy and the list goes on. Ride your bike to a Toronto FC game, explore the crazy landfill bird sanctuary that is the Leslie Street Spit, ride up the Humber and Don Valley and spend hours in Trinity Bellwoods, watching people and eating a snack.
All of our rentals are properly tuned and legally fitted out with powerful lights and a loud bell. A helmet is also provided, as is a lock (except in the case of Bromptons). We require that all renters are over the age of 18 and we take a security deposit on each rental as well as a signed waiver (this can be taken care of in-store or in-advance, online).
